Fierce rivalries are set to continue up and down the field as the revitalised Porsche Carrera Cup GB grid converges on Croft for rounds 7 & 8 of thrilling 460hp 911 GT3 Cup Car action. The challenging 2.1 mile circuit will provide the perfect scene for more breath-taking racing from the 27 identical flat-six rear-engined race cars.

 

With a raft of innovative initiatives, including a new-for-2015 Rookie Class and three different race categories, the opening three rounds of the fastest one-make UK race series have been packed with edge-of-the-seat drama. All signs are that Croft will be full of even more eye-catching wheel-to-wheel battles.

 

Watching the capacity grid tackle the demanding track layout with its mix of tight, twisty sections and long straights will certainly be something to savour. The picturesque North Yorkshire venue never fails to test man and machine and so any points picked up will be well-earned.

 

Looking to add to his impressive tally of four wins already this season and extend his 27 point lead at the top of the Championship standings is Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish. The 26-year-old Yorkshireman already looks like the strong title favourite after handling every challenge thrown at him so far with aplomb. The former Formula Ford champion has not finished off the podium in 2015, something his nearest rivals will be hoping changes if they are to claw him back in.

 

Series returnee Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) leads the chasing pack after a string of consistent performances and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster is not far behind in third. The defending champion won both races around the North Yorkshire track last year and will be brimming with confidence heading into the event. The Stowmarket-based driver, who tested there last week, will be looking to start his weekend with a strong qualifying performance.

 

Other contenders will be Oulton Park race winner Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing), Nicholas Latifi (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) and Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport). All three have proven that they are a match for anyone when they are on top form. Canadian Latifi displayed his best race pace at Oulton Park and looks dangerous moving forwards.

 

Paul Rees (Parr Motorsport), speedy Spaniard Victor Jimenez (IN2 Racing) and Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) will also be ones to watch as they look to get their first podium of the year. A strong result at Croft would be the perfect springboard to a successful second half of the season.  

 

Just eight points separate the main contenders in the Pro-Am1 class. Jordan Witt who claimed the ‘Driver of the Weekend’ accolade at Oulton Park and Irishman Karl Leonard are in hot pursuit of class leader Ignas Gelzinis. The Lithuanian’s lead currently stands at four points but that could all change.

 

In the Pro-Am2 category, Iain Dockerill (Asset Advantage Race Team) leads the way after opening up a ten point gap over his closest challenger John McCullagh (Redline Racing). Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) and Graeme Mundy (IN2 Racing) have also shown their ability to lead races. With 20 points separating the top six drivers, it’s all to play for.

 

After qualifying on Saturday (27 June) at 15.05, round seven of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 12.42 on Sunday with round eight later that day at 16.19 (28 June). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Zamparelli tops Free Practice after Meadows shows early pace

Free Practice One


Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Michael Meadows topped the morning timesheets as the talent-packed Porsche Carrera Cup GB field was forced to overcome tricky damp conditions at Croft Circuit in North Yorkshire. The 2.1-mile track was covered in wet patches at the beginning of the 35-minute session but conditions gradually improved as the 27-year-old exited the pits late on to set the pace.

 

The 2012 and 2013 Carrera Cup GB champion, who comes off the back of a superb win at Oulton Park, is feeling confident going into the weekend. “Since we left Spa-Francorchamps, I have been driving well and feel good in the car,” Meadows said. “I spent the first couple of laps getting used to the Porsche again and then went out to get a feel of the track in the wet in case those conditions reappear for the races. Overall I don’t think this is too difficult a track if you are confident in yourself and the car and I don’t see any reason why Dan (Cammish), Nicholas (Latifi) and I can’t be out at the front fighting it out.”

 

Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) and current Championship points leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) were best of the rest with Parr Motorsport’s Paul Rees in fourth. The 29-year-old Oxford-based driver, who took pole position here last year, looked at home from the get-go.

 

“It was quite a strange session,” Rees said. “Everyone was waiting for the times of the guys on slick tyres to drop before heading out and getting to grips with the conditions. The times from this session will definitely be a few seconds off qualifying pace. This is a track I did very well at 12 months ago and I’m really looking forward to racing here. I feel like we’ve made a big step forward as a team.”

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Berkshire’s Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport) finished ahead of rivals Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) and Jack Falla (Redline Racing). The 49-year-old will be hoping he can carry that form through to tomorrow’s qualifying and secure grid positions that will give him a good chance of taking some solid points.

 

Lithuanian Tautvydas Barstys (Juta Racing) topped the Pro-Am2 timings ahead of Redline Racing’s John McCullagh and Asset Advantage Race Team’s Iain Dockerill. The 28-year-old set the quickest time at the end of the session when the track was drying out.

 

Free Practice Two

 

Parr Motorsport’s Dino Zamparelli was the pacesetter in the afternoon session as the 25 identical 460 hp Porsche 911 Cup Cars took to the challenging Croft track once more. There were just 15 minutes of dry running before rain put bay to any hopes of a long run on the slick tyres.

 

“I was on rather a conservative run so I’m surprised to come top,” the Bristolian stated. “I feel in good shape for tomorrow and really prepared following our test here last week. It’s now all about taking that pace into tomorrow and Sunday.”

 

Just over a tenth separated the top three with Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) and Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) pushing Zamparelli all the way. Usual contenders Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing), Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) and Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) were next in the pecking order.

 

Pro-Am1 front-runner Jordan Witt continued his impressive form finishing seventh overall and top in class. The 24-year-old will be determined to have a good qualifying to give him the best shot of overtaking Ignas Gelzinis at the top of the points standings. His nearest challenger was Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport) who built on his strong morning outing.

 

Former British Junior Rally Team driver John McCullagh, who lives in Great Smeaton just five miles away from Croft, showed positive signs of adding to his three podiums so far this season by topping the Pro-Am2 timings. “We didn’t do too much in either of the sessions as wet tyres could be crucial this weekend,” the Inlec-backed driver said. “Last time I was here in the Porsche Club Championship I picked up two podiums and I’d love to repeat that this time out.”

Dan Cammish continues title assault with double pole position at Croft

 

Media release: 27th June 2015

Current Porsche Carrera Cup GB points leader Dan Cammish produced two exceptional laps to bag double pole position as the record-breaking eleven-team grid took to the unforgiving Croft Circuit in the picturesque North Yorkshire countryside. The Leeds-born former Formula Ford champion took advantage of the perfect conditions to give himself a great chance of adding to his four victories already this season.

 

Such was his dominance that his second fastest lap was quicker than any time set by the rest of the field in their identical 460 hp 911 Cup Cars. The 26-year-old went top of the timings early in the session and continued to light up the timing screens throughout his eleven laps, giving his nearest rivals no chance to steal pole off him.

 

“I’m really happy with my performance out there today,” said the Yorkshireman. “It’s probably the first time I’ve got out of the car after qualifying and been really delighted with how it’s gone. I really do have a fantastic car thanks to the guys at Redline Racing. Tomorrow will be all about converting this promising quali into points. I’m starting in the right place because it’s notoriously difficult to pass here.”

Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar and defending champion Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) will line up second on the grid for both races after pushing Cammish hardest. The Stowmarket-based 21-year-old will be determined to get a good start and apply immediate pressure on the polesitter in his fight to regain some ground in the title hunt. Fellow title contender Stephen Jelley also had a consistent day meaning he will line up fourth for rounds 7 & 8.

 

The other notable performance in the Pro category came from IDL Racing’s Tom Sharp who secured a mighty impressive starting position of third for tomorrow’s first race. The series rookie looks at home in his flat-six rear-engined Porsche and will be one to keep an eye out for when the racing gets under way.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Juta Racing’s Ignas Gelzinis overcame the issues he suffered in practice on Friday to notch double class pole. The Lithuanian, who has looked impressive all season, crossed the line just faster than Redline Racing’s Jack Falla and Parr Motorsport’s Mark Cole.

 

“I’m really happy with the result,” stated the 24-year-old. “I went into the session having done just two laps in dry conditions and in those moments it is really hard to believe in yourself. On the first set of tyres I was getting used to the track and on the second I finally managed to find the right balance. I feel like I could have gone quicker too as I hit traffic on a number of occasions. Who knows what tomorrow will bring but I’ve got track position which is crucial.”

 

In arguably the tightest class, Pro-Am2, Redline Racing’s John McCullagh stole the show by claiming pole for both of tomorrow’s races. The Inlec-backed driver from Great Smeaton beat Lithuanian Tautvydas Barstys (Juta Racing) and Francis Galashan (GT Marques) to put him in prime position to claim more solid points.

 

“It feels great to be at Croft in front of the home fans,” the former British Junior Rally Team driver said. “Conditions are absolutely great and we got a good clear lap which enabled us to put all the bits together. There was probably a bit more time in the car but because of the lead we had, we decided to call it a day and save our tyres. It’s a very narrow circuit, so qualifying was really important and hopefully it stands us in good stead for the races.”

Cammish take round seven win with Webster close behind

 

Media release: 28th June 2015

Current Championship points leader Dan Cammish took his fifth win of the season thanks to a commanding drive in Round 7 of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB at Croft. The 26-year-old, who started on pole, got off to an excellent start and always looked in control despite pressure from Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster.

 

The Yorkshireman led by a distance into the first corner but his time advantage was immediately wiped out by a safety car period after an incident between Jack Falla and Ryan Cullen. The former Formula Ford champion didn’t let that deter him and was able to manage the gap to the defending champion behind and bring his Nationwide-backed Porsche home in top spot. 

 

“It’s not often that you launch a car like that,” said Cammish. “After the safety car, I just turned the speed on and managed the gap. The race was effectively over by the halfway point and it was just a case of watching where Josh was and reacting if he got any closer. You can see tyre management is an issue here but that is something we’re fairly good at.”

 

Cammish and Webster were joined on the podium by Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Michael Meadows who spent large parts of the race battling with Stephen Jelley for third. The 27-year-old was intent on finding a way to get past Jelley on the notoriously tight track before it all came together for the former double champion.

 

There were good drives too by Tom Sharp (IDL Racing), Nicholas Latifi (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) and Paul Rees (Parr Motorsport). Championship rookie Sharp looks to be gaining confidence at the wheel of his 460hp flat-six 911 and will be one to watch in the second half of the season.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Irishman Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) finished narrowly ahead of Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt and Juta Racing’s Ignas Gelzinis. “I’ve never been to Croft so I’m really happy with this,” the 38-year-old said. Everything just seemed to open up for me nicely which was good after possibly the worst qualifying I’ve ever done. Jordan gave me a bit of hassle at the end but it was a nice feeling to get over the line first.”

 

Great Smeaton-based John McCullagh continued his fine form at his home track by finishing over six seconds ahead of his nearest Pro-Am2 rival. GT Marques’ Francis Galashan and Asset Advantage Race Team’s Iain Dockerill completed the top three. “I’m absolutely delighted,” McCullagh stated. “It was important to keep our noses clean. I managed to avoid the incident on the first lap and after that it was a case of keeping the others behind me. I was focused on the car and the tyres and bringing it all home safely.”

Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish made it a Croft clean sweep as he eased to his second Porsche Carrera Cup GB win of the day and extended his Championship points lead to 41. Not content with taking home two first place trophies, the Yorkshireman also ensured he set both fastest laps of the day to complete the perfect weekend in front of his home crowd.

 

The Leeds-based driver got off to a great start once more which is crucial on a track as narrow as Croft. Cammish’s focus subsequently turned to keeping Josh Webster and then Michael Meadows at a comfortable distance in order to take the chequered flag and his sixth win of an incredible season.     

 

“It was great out there in the best car on the grid,” the 26-year-old commented. “I’ve had a fantastic day with two wins, two poles and two fastest laps. This gives me massive confidence looking ahead to the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup next weekend. The second race was very similar to the first as I always felt we had that pace. It’s massive to win at home in front of lots of people who have backed me.”

 

Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Michael Meadows followed Cammish across the line in second ahead of 2014 champion Josh Webster. The Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar moves up to second in the overall points after another well-deserved pair of podium finishes.

 

Championship returnee Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) picked up another strong haul of points with his second fourth place finish of the day and IDL Racing’s Tom Sharp was once again on the pace to come home fifth.

 

Pro-Am1 front-runner Ignas Gelzinis stretched his overall lead to six points with another class win and fastest lap. However it was far from easy going for the Lithuanian who sustained intense pressure from Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt in the closing stages. “It was a tough race but I’m delighted with the pace we had,” the 24-year-old said. “We didn’t have the pace in the first race so it was a good recovery. I had been pushing Leonard hard and so when he went off into the gravel, it was my time to pounce. At the end we had a good fight with Witt but I managed to finish first and extend my lead at the top of the points.”

 

Not to be outdone by Redline Racing teammate Dan Cammish, John McCullagh also rounded off a faultless weekend of two wins, two poles and two fastest laps in the Pro-Am2 class to pick up the ‘Driver of the Weekend’ prize. The Inlec-backed driver led home G-Cat Racing’s Thomas Jennings and Juta Racing’s Tautvydas Barstys to take a one point lead in the standings. “Carrera Cup is a difficult game with plenty of fantastically fierce competition so this is an awesome feeling,” McCullagh commented. “It’s great to win in front of my friends, family and sponsors.”
